Stormy Weather In My Books
This is Janet Tronstad here thinking about weather in my books. I am beginning a new book and I have a snow storm going in my little town of Dry Creek. A blizzard is what the story needs, but I am reminded of how many books I've written with blustery snow falling. Perhaps because my location for Dry creek is in sucn a small town that the ground is significant (there are no sidewalks so mud becomes an issue as does snow). We have a discussion going over at our Love Inspired Historicals discussion groun on Goodreads about weather in books. It seems most people have some kind of seasonal preference for reading and writing (not that anyone uses that as the sole decision on what to read). A snow blizzard feels cozy to me though in a way that a hot day at the beach doesn't and, all other things being equal, I'd reach for the snow book rather than the summer book. How about you? What weather do you find most romantic?
